I'm looking for more information on Mary Bridget Hogan from Cloonliffen, Ballinrobe County Mayo.  She was born on Jan 1, 1861 and baptised on Jan 27, 1861 in Cloonliffen, Ballinrobe RC parish.  Her parents listed on the baptism were Michael and Mary Hogan.  Mary Bridget Hogan left Ireland around 1878/79 and came to the united states.  She settled in Youngstown Ohio and married Patrick E Finn.  They married in Nov of 1879. 

I would like to know if she had any siblings.  Regarding her parents: I found a Michael Hogan (born 6aug1823) and a Mary Hogan (born 8May1833) both in Kilmoremay/Ballina.  I cannot find a marriage for them.  I found a Michael Hogan that died Aug 25, 1884 in Cloonliffen (age 61) and Mary Hogan that died on Apr24, 1922 (age 88) also in Cloonliffen. 

I have a lot of information on Mary Bridget when she was in the US, I am looking to confirm if these are her parents and if she had brothers or sisters, aunts/uncles etc.  If anyone has any information to share or suggest I would appreciate it.

Thank you.

    The Ballinrobe RC records appear to have a gap in the 1850s.   I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland and located a baptismal record for a Michael Hogan baptized September 10 1851 in Ballinrobe. parents Michael Hogan and Mary Hogan townland Cloonliffin. Likely there were other children in the 1850s. It is unlikely that the baptismal records you located in Ballina were for your ancestors. Ballina and Ballinrobe are a good distance apart.

    The 1901 census for Cloonliffen shows a Bridget Hogan 80 with a daughter Kate age 40. So Kate may be another child.

    I made a mistake with the 1901 census. Ignore the Bridget Hogan record.
